Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - The Filson Historical Society screened rare footage of Louisville from the 1920s and '30s in a special exhibit.

The screening drew in more than 90 people for the noon showing on June 13.

The rare film was taken by two different Louisville families in the 1920s and '30s, and it's considered to be some of the earliest moving film of the city to be in existence.

It showed a bustling downtown with trolley cars, a frozen Ohio River and more.

The film was shown as part of an exhibit called Preserving Early Amateur Film of Kentucky.

Another screening is set to take place in August.
